Scholarships available from House
HARRISBURG - High school seniors can now apply for a Pennsylvania House of Representatives Scholarship to help cover the costs of higher education, Rep. Lynda Schlegel Culver (R-108) announced. Each year, two students preparing for post-secondary education are awarded four-year scholarships. The program is privately funded by individual and corporate donors. No tax or other public funds are used.
The program is open to graduating high school seniors who are Pennsylvania residents with plans to attend a Pennsylvania college, university or career school as a full-time student. Students must have attained a minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average in high school in order to be eligible for the scholarship. A student's commitment to community, leadership qualities, extracurricular activities and financial need are also taken into consideration.
The scholarship program is administered through the Foundation for Enhancing Communities. To apply, interested students should visit www.LyndaCulver.com and click on House Scholarship Information. The application deadline is March 1. Scholarships are awarded through an independent panel of judges chosen by the foundation.
